    Day 56 of 365. I'm still in Computer Virus Hell...but it's been a productive day. Maybe the beginning of the end is in sight.

      This photo is much more fun then a virus of anykind. "Best wishes for speedy recovery"

      I'm just impressed you getting rid of it on your own!

      Don't be that impressed. My part is trying to back up files I should have been backing up for years. When I get that done, I'll turn it over to a computer geek to do a re-install of XP

      Poor Lady! I truly understand! It's why I switched to a Mac years ago. I've only had one major meltdown since (thank goodness!). I hope you get things running smoothly soon!

      My heart goes out to you, Bev...but I'm wondering...if you're gonna pay someone to reinstall...why not have them do the back up? Can't they do it faster because they know all the tricks? Just wondering! :o) Hang in there!!!!!!!

      He'll do most of the backup but there were some files I wanted to make sure got off and got organized (no, not porn, you silly boy...)

      Backing up I hate to do. Should set a date of the week each week and move stuff. Notice I said should.

      I just bought an external hard drive and intend to save documents on it instead of my hard drive. I hope that helps.

      Great Picture :-)
      I am remaking a clip of mine dedicated to hard working programmers and I am looking for new pictures for the remake.
      the clip as it is now appears on youtube under "And So You Code"

      I would very much like to use this picture of yours in the new clip.
      I will of course make sure that full credit is given to every picture owner also with links to the owner's web site.
      Just tell me what I should write under: Name, Location, and URLs.

      Please tell me if it is OK to use your picture (basykes/490907537/) in the clip remake at andsoyoucode@gmail.com

      Thank You,
      OS
